The Fine Print

*Program only available in the US and Canada. Referee must be a permanent resident of the US or Canada. Referrals submitted after August 1, 2012 are eligible for consideration. Bonuses are paid after the referred hire has been on active payroll for 90 days. Bonuses will be paid out as a Visa gift card. If a candidate is referred more than once, the referral bonus will be paid to the first referring party only. If a referred candidate is placed more than once, a referral bonus will only be paid the first time he/she is placed. Your referral expires 6 months from the date of the initial referral. If your referral does not start on an Akraya assignment in those 6 months, you will no longer qualify for a referral bonus. In order to qualify, the referral must be a candidate that has not been identified through Akraya’s standard recruiting process. Since there may be duplication of names referred to us, Akraya reserves the right at its sole discretion to determine if a referral bonus is due, and to whom.
